For over 155 years, we’ve stayed true to Jacob Leinenkugel’s vision for combining the German brewing traditions of his homeland with the innovative spirit of his new home. Today you’ll find that spirit alive and well inside our wide range of German-inspired beers. From Shandy to IPAs, Weiss to Bocks, we’ve got a beer to flavor any moment.
